The Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces has continued its impressed gains today against ISIS in the eastern Aleppo countryside, meaning they have captured more than 500km square in less than a week.

The latest advances have now put the Syrian Army within 4km of the Deir Hafer from the northern and the eastern axes. The imperative town serves as another entry into Raqqa province.

The advancement has now also put the Syrian Army within 23km of the imperative water facility at Al-Khafsah. Although there is still a distance to reach the facility, the security of the water facility affects all civilians in the region.

Most importantly however, the Syrian Army has entered the town of Tadef. The security of this town and the smaller settlements to the east of it, allows for the Syrian Army to prevent and block the Turkish-led forces from making anymore advancements in eastern Aleppo countryside.

The illegal operations by Turkey with the backing of the Free Syrian Army and Islamist forces are denounced by Damascus.

These impressive gains continue from earlier today where the Syrian Army made rapid advancements, capturing 12 sites from ISIS terrorists.

Yes absolutely great. But I think that the map does not fit the text. Doesn’t it? p.s. I hope. The SAA links up with the Kurds and then let’s drive to Raqqa and on to Deir Ezzor on route 4. Not take castles like Dayr Hafir but take the flat land & supply roads to fortified towns. AFAIK It takes very accomplished generals and trained troops to stabilize the fronts in such a situation. That is why it is or was AFAIK Russian standard doctrine. When that is done the enemy can only flee late which can lead to huge… Read more »

A map is always a static image, and the reality is dynamic. I think the map is nearly right.
I agree that a political alliance would be good. The goverment has to give something, and the kurds have to accept this gift. Without any agrement, it will be a game between 3 parties. And that has a cost in term of lives.

Take Your word for it. I have doubts that the map is recent.

The Kurds and the government share some values.
IS has no values. So a decision to pole strengths is obvious.

War is the art of the possible. Without massive weapon supplies by all the “Fiends of Syria” this “pipeline war” of the GCC would be over for years. It has been a back and forth with the upper hand at the side that got up-armed by its suppliers most recently.

p.s. It has been like that since modern industry based warfare started in WW I or so. Before that You were done immediately if Your enemy had better arms.

Stay busy, Syrians. Keep steamrolling ISIS, it seems that the SAA has become another SDF – they capture multiple villages in one day while the turks take one village a week.

Yes. But the SAA has too many fronts with other hostile militias.
The Turks have no experience and little motivation to fight in Syria.

SAA advances in some areas and loses in others. The facts on the ground is since the Russian intervention the control by the government has doubled (1/6th of the country, half the population to 1/3rd of the country, 67% of the poplulation). However, the SAA has not lost anywhere except in Palmyra recently and they are back at it only 10 km from the city. (They were pushed 60 km from it, they regained 50km). I recommend checking out syria.liveuamap.com if you want to follow how it develops.

Yes. Plus each side is up-armed by its sponsors when it looks like loosing. The same happened in the Lebanese civil war.
